If you missed the mockumentary Yacht Rock, let us catch you up: It followed the fake lives of soft-rock singers in the 1970s and ’80s. The idea is that the kind of music they produced is exactly what we all want to hear while chilling on the back of a yacht.
That’s about all you need to know before checking out this video clip of the Guilty Pleasures tribute band singing Iron Maiden’s “Run to the Hills” in yacht-rock style. It’s surprisingly, really shockingly, good.
We can’t wait to see what James Taylor or Jimmy Buffett do with the song next.
